Endometriosis Awareness Month Fundraiser
March is Endometriosis Awareness Month!
If you aren't aware what endometriosis is click here to learn more about endometriosis.

As you all know I've been struggling with endometriosis ever since I was 13/14 years old (I'm 22 now), I've finally gotten my surgery and my future is looking a bit brighter. However there are still so many women that aren't getting the help that they need! The process of getting the diagnosis alone can take years and getting proper help after your diagnosis is a very difficult fight.
For me it took 4 or 5 years to get my diagnosis after going to the doctors almost monthly with my symptoms that kept getting worse! It also took another 3 to 4 years to finally get my surgery. 8 years of dealing with extreme pain isn't normal especially not when you're still growing up!
Sadly enough my story isn't rare at all! They say that 1 in 10 women have endometriosis, this number can be higher due to many women not even getting a diagnosis. They say that there currently are around 3,945,858,420 women in the world, 10% of that is 394,585,842. 400 million women worldwide have endometriosis and there still there isn't a cure, and even worse a lot of people don't even know that endometriosis exists!
If you have more than 10 women in your families then there is a high chance that you have at least one family member that has endometriosis, same with your female friends.

They currently have removed all of my cysts and endometriosis tissue, but endometriosis is a chronic illness that grows back. 50% of all women have to undergo surgery again within 5 years after their first surgery according to The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
This means that the future is actually still very insecure for me, and the future is very insecure for all women who struggle with endometriosis, because it impacts all areas of your life!

Even though this all sounds extremely grim I'm really looking at my future in a positive way!
I've been struggling with extreme pain for 8 years that literally made it impossible to work or study during the last 4 years (especially the last 2), so every year that I have earned with less pain feels like a blessing, and I'm going to use those years the best I can!

The very first thing I want to do is to have a fundraiser for the dutch endometriosis foundation, Endometriose Stichting.
The Endometriose Stichting focusses on raising awareness, especially for in high school students, so that women recognise the symptoms themselves earlier. They also arrange meet ups for people with endometriosis, where doctors will give information, but sometimes also to just get to know others with the same illness. They keep their eyes on all the medical developments about endometriosis, but even then awareness is key also among doctors!
They have a lot of useful tips for people with endometriosis and I think that this is the perfect organisation to hold my fundraiser for! There also isn't a better time to hold this fundraiser than Endometriosis awareness month! The organisation also celebrates their 20th anniversary!
Fundraiser Details
I decided to hold a fundraiser in which I donate a certain amount of money for every item I sell this month to the endometriose stichting!
How does this work?
I will be donating 1 euro for every item I sell that costs somewhere between €4 and €10.
I will be donating 2 euro 50 for every item I sell that costs more than €10.
If your order total is higher than 50 euro's I'm donate an extra €5!!

This means that the more items you order the more money I'm going to donate at the end of the month!

I'm extremely excited about hosting this fundraiser and I'm sure that the foundation is going to be happy with any amount of money we are raising this way, wether it's big or small!
